This monograph is the first formal public report of the Syncrude revegetation program. The revegetation program itself is part of a long term (up to 30 years) effort directed towards reclaiming and rehabilitating the disturbed land areas. The goal is to return these land areas to a state...
This report outlines the progress made in 1975 in the Revegetation Research Program which is co-ordinated through the Botany Section of the Plant Industry Laboratory. This program is a joint research project co-sponsored by Alberta Agriculture, Alberta Environment, Alberta Highways and the Oil...
Studies were continued in 1976 into the improvement of a five year old revegetated area on a tailings sand dike by the implementation of different fertilizer programs. In June, 1976 levels of available N, P, K and S were adequate for plant growth. However, even where fertilizers were added...
Interim report on small mammal populations and related tree damage in the AOSERP study area, October and November 1977Download
The afforestation program in the Athabasca Oil Sands area has been only moderately successful, because of the high mortality of the planted seedlings--much of which Is believed to be the result of high levels of small mammal damage. The objectives of the present study were: (1) to determine the...
The tailings sand slope that was seeded in July, 1976, was considered completely stable in 1977. No wind or water erosion or movement of soil particulates was detected in 1977. Of the fourteen species seeded in 1976, only Lupine and the oat cover crop did not grow in 1977. A comparison of fall...
The results are reported of research into the revegetation of two areas on a steeply sloping dike composed of tailings sand from tar sand extraction at the Great Canadian Oil Sand Limited plant at Fort McMurray, Alberta. One area was seeded with three pasture grasses and two legumes in 1971 after...
Interim report on reclamation for afforestation by suitable native and introduced tree and shrub speciesDownload
AOSERP project VE 7.1 was initiated to carry out field investigations in the revegetation of oi1 sands mine wastes (waste dumps and tailing sand) with trees and shrubs. The main objective of the project is to select species of trees and shrubs which are adapted to conditions on these waste...
Monitoring was continued at instrumented sites which were selected in spring 1976, at Mildred Lake, Supertest Hill, the GCOS dike, and near Richardson Tower. Because of budget limitations, sites at Richardson were only monitored occasionally. However, information was obtained at a number of...
An ecophysiological investigation of the jackpine woodland with reference to revegetation of mined sandsDownload
This project was conceived as a multidisciplinary integrated study to determine the physiological limits of native and non-native species to dry, nutrient-poor environmental conditions on a steep-sided sand dike and on sand piles. Only when the limits of survival are known for native and...
A group of 48 people from government, academia, consultants and the oil sands and plant production industries gathered on November 25, 2013 to discuss the current state of knowledge about shrubs and their current and future use in oil sands reclamation. The Workshop was organized around four key...
